London Bus Safety

We took a look at data collected from the Transport for London reporting system on accidents involving buses in London between 2015 and 2018. The data show a disproportionate number of incidents affecting passengers.

Our approach was to keep focused on the high level figures and the impacts to passengers. Starting off with some BANs showing the sheer number of recorded incidents each year, moving to a tree map to emphasize the impacts on passengers. This is followed up by a lollipop chart showing a more specific breakdown of the passenger incident types and resulting injuries.

Here’s the original report and here is the live visual on our Tableau Public page.
